A sitar owned and played by George Harrison has been sold for $62,500 (£46,581) in the United States.
The instrument, purchased from a shop on London's Oxford Street in 1965, was used by Harrison during the recording of the Beatles song Norwegian Wood.
The Indian string instrument, crafted by a well-known music shop in Kolkata, was later gifted to a friend of Harrison's first wife, Patti Boyd.
The name of the successful bidder has not been disclosed by the auctioneers.
Bidding for the sitar began on 28 September at $50,000 (£37,327).
Harrison had discovered the sitar in 1965, on the set of the Beatles' second film, Help.
